Get social with Pandora
Streaming music services like Spotify and Twitter Music get all the attention these days probably because they make it so easy to share your favorite music on social networks.
But your old reliable extremely popular friend, Pandora also has a bunch of tools for sharing your favorite music and I'm gonna walk you through them in today's How To.
The first thing you should do is log in to your Pandora account or create one if
you haven't already signed up.
Next, head over to the drop down menu onto your name and select settings.
Click privacy from the sidebar and scroll down to manage external services.
From here you can link up your Facebook and Twitter accounts by signing in.
Then scroll back up to the top of the page and you'll see an option for making your list in the activity public or private.
If you're watching this video I'm assuming that you're okay with being public, so let's leave that box checked.
Under that you'll see a section called additional options.
Here you can allow Pandora to publish to your Facebook timeline
and get specific about the kinds of things that can publish such as listens, likes and other people you follow on Pandora.
Personally, I like to keep it to just songs I like.
Now for the last step, hit the save changes button down here.
So what about Twitter?
Well, from the main playback page, you'll see a share option where you can manually share songs and stations on Facebook or Twitter.
There's even an email option down here if there's someone in particular that you wanna send to.
While we're here, you'll also notice the publish button on the left where you
can toggle your Facebook auto publish settings on and off.
This is handy for those times where your kid requests some Elmo song and you wanna keep that filthy garbage off of your Facebook page.
Finally, one of the least appreciated features of Pandora is that you can discover what your Facebook friends are listening to by going up to the music feed tab up here and then finding your fellow Pandora loving friends using the find people button on the sidebar.
You can use the follow button to add people to your stream or click on their names to take a peek at what they've been listening
Now the people you follow will appear in your feed and you can discover some great new stations this way.
So that's how to share your favorite Pandora tracks and stations on Facebook and Twitter.
